What to do if you are scared of that drilling noise of a dental airotor?
At cosmodent we use conscious sedation for the treating the patients who are anxious and afraid and very uncooperative. This is done for the comfort and safety of patient during the treatment procedure
What Is Sedation?
Sedation is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state through the use of sedatives. Sedative drugs can be administered in a variety of ways. In the past, intravenous (IV) sedation – sedatives delivered via injection into the blood vessels of the hand or arm – was predominantly used to sedate a dental patient
Today, however, sedation dentistry has evolved to be even more conducive to a relaxing experience. Patients have alternatives to the traditional modalities of inhalation (nitrous oxide or “laughing gas”) and IVs, such as those offering a “no needle” (meaning, no injection) approach that many people find more appealing
WHAT IS CONSCIOUS SEDATION?
At cosmodent we are well equipped and use Conscious sedation for people who feel anxious or panicked during complex procedures like fillings, root canals, or routine cleanings. Conscious sedation dentistry, also known as procedural sedation and analgesia, is the procedure whereby sedatives are administered before a dental procedure to help you relax. You remain awake and responsive during your dental treatment, and you won't feel any pain.
- Patient will be awake but will feel like the long procedures are done in few minutes.
- You will receive inhalation gas (nitrous oxide) through a mask along with oxygen
- Conscious sedation guarantee a relaxed and less painful dental treatment and leaves you with a happy feeling in your head
Another type of sedation in General anesthesia, it is commonly used for surgery and a small percentage of people who are not good candidates for conscious sedation dentistry
